   The new science of ageing is a Royal Society scientific discussion
   meeting organised by Professor Linda Partridge DBE FRS , Professor
   Janet Thornton CBE FRS and Professor Gillian Bates FRS . Research into
   ageing has been galvanised by the discovery of single-gene mutations
   that extend healthy lifespan of laboratory animals and that delay
   multiple, ageing-related diseases. Evolutionary conservation of these
   genetic effects allows the use of invertebrates to understand human
   ageing. This meeting will discuss the scientific challenges and the
   prospects for a broad-spectrum, preventative medicine for age-related
   disease. This discussion meeting is intended for researchers in
   relevant fields and is free to attend, but pre-registration online is
   essential – see the event website for details.
